An event like Lesotho Sky does not get organised overnight. It takes a few Basotho villages to accomplish and set up Africa’s top MTB stage race. We have to appreciate the effort it takes to make this event happen each year. Introducing Lesotho Sky’s finest, the clan.

Christian
Managing Director & Founder
Christian completed his primary school in Lesotho and continued schooling in Germany and South Africa. A strong propensity to adventure and his inclination to invest in the mother continent have recently brought him back from London to Cape Town. One of his childhood memories is cruising through Lesotho on a BMX bike and it is his passion for riding that led him to the Lesotho Sky. He holds an Honours Degree in Financial Analysis and Portfolio Management from the University of Cape Town. Changing the world by means of his own ideas, he is the proud founder of this event.

Darol
Event Director & Founder
Darol loves mountain biking, canoeing, surfing and anything else that gets him outside with the potential of a crash to tell his mates about. He has completed 2 cape epics, many canoe marathons and many, many other events. To complicate his interests he is type 1 diabetic and writes a blog (https://diabetesadventure.com) to inspire and inform other diabetics that the disease is no obstacle. Apart from that he is a qualified Mechatronic engineer. An apparently versatile degree, particularly if you are into organising mountain biking events…
